Abstract : It is likely that future aircraft will contain a central data base containing feature details, ground elevation, low flying obstruction data, intelligence and mission data. Recent advances in technology have made it possible to implement such a data base within an aircraft. The existence of a central data base facilitates many new functions for both low level ground attack and air defence aircraft. These functions include: improved moving map displays, precision navigation systems, covert radar shadowing, surface to air missile site intervisibility, and perspective terrain displays for use in adverse visibility conditions. The integration of such a system is currently being finalised and forms part of an on going flight trials program in fixed wing jet aircraft. (Author)
